Test Case execution
This page provide information about Test Case execution.
Test Case workflow processing
After creating Test Cases on the Test Plan, you can start processing test execution. By default, the Test Case has its own workflow, which is based on five statuses: Open, In progress, Pass, Fail and Retest. You can start running Test Cases using default workflow or change it and adapt to your project needs.
You can configure Test Case workflow in the same way as other workflows in Jira.
Changing steps statuses
The next step of processing Test Case is execute test steps. After preparing the test environment and meeting all the preconditions, you can start executing the steps. There are three ways to change execution status of steps in Steps panel:
1. Single status change
To change single step status, hover over the status in the appropriate step and click on the one that indicates the step execution.
2. Bulk status change
To bulk change you can use the Status button. Click on the Status and choose appriopriate execution status for all steps.
3. Status change for steps group
If the steps are divided into groups, you can change the status for a single step or use the Change option and change the status of the whole group of steps.
